2019 SI Swimsuit Model Search Winner, Brooks Nader, 2019 SI Swimsuit Cover Star, Camille Kostek and models Kelsey Merritt, Olivia Brower and Robin Holzken
Brooks Nader threw out the first pitch to Camille Kostek at the Miami Marlins vs New York Mets baseball game at Marlins Park on Sunday, July 14. The 2019 Model Search Winner was joined by models from this year’s SI Swimsuit issue to help kick off the game.
As the Model Search winner, Brooks Nader will return as a Rookie in the 2020 SI Swimsuit issue. The Baton Rouge native attended the open casting call in Miami last year as a Model Search hopeful. Persevering each round of callbacks, Nader was interviewed and handpicked as “favorite” model applicant by the iconic Christie Brinkley, earning her way to the final six out of over 10,000 applicants. SI Swimsuit then turned to the fans to vote for the woman they’d like to see return to the pages of SI Swimsuit 2020. Based on a combination of popular vote, editor’s choice and an evaluation of the contestant’s proven history as an SI Swimsuit brand ambassador, Nader was named winner.
